Immobile was ineffective and largely starved of service in Dortmund's 2-1 loss Saturday to Werder Bremen.

Following an impressive showing midweek against high-flying Wolfsburg, Immobile went into Saturday's clash in confident mood. However the Italian had scarce opportunity to flaunt his ability, a blocked header from a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cross the closest he came to finding the net. Immobile has now completed his first half-season at Dortmund having scored just three times but fans will be hoping he has a similar post-winter season to that he had at Torino last year when he netted 14 Serie A goals.

Immobile scored and got an assist in an all-round excellent display as Dortmund's 2-2 draw Wednesday with Wolfsburg.

Immobile had his best game of the season and looked a completely different player to who Dortmund fans have come to know. He worked tirelessly throughout, taking just 8 minutes to pick out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a pin-point cross and grabbing an assist. He was then denied by two fine saves from Wolfsburg goalkeeper Diego Benaglio before shooting narrowly wide. With 76 minutes on the clock, Immobile surged forward and scored with an excellent strike to cap off a hugely impressive performance. The forward, who also won more tackles than anyone else on the field, has finally shown why Dortmund paid 19.5 million for him in the summer.

Immobile played the full 90 minutes but failed to find the net as Dortmund lost 1-0 Saturday to Hertha Berlin.

Immobile was handed a rare start following his midweek Champions League goal but failed to capitalize on the opportunity. He was industrious and had four shots on goal including an effort well-saved by Hertha goalkeeper Thomas Kraft on 65 minutes. However he was guilty of missing a glorious opportunity late-on, heading wide when it appeared far easier to score. Despite his efforts, that crucial miss could well cost him his place next time out.

Immobile scored Dortmund's only goal as they drew 1-1 Tuesday with Anderlecht in the Champions League.

Immobile grabbed his first goal since scoring in the same competition against Galatasaray on Nov. 4. The Italian has been limited to very few appearances lately but this performance against the Belgian champions will do his confidence a world of good. Immobile finished with a superb curling shot on 58 minutes following good work by Nuri Sahin and he could have had more were it not for a couple of good saves by Anderlecht's Silvio Proto. Seemingly having found a new lease of life, Immobile will hope he gets a chance to to extend his goal-scoring streak Sunday at Hertha Berlin.

Immobile made a rare start but failed to score as Dortmund lost 2-0 to Arsenal in the Champions League Wednesday.

Immobile has had very little game time lately owing to his poor form but made his first start since the DFB Pokal win over St. Pauli. His selection was not justified however as the Italian toiled badly in attack and had little in the way of chances. Dortmund may have already qualified from the competition's group stages and so a result here wasn't essential but for Immobile it was a key chance wasted to force himself back into the team.

Immobile replaced Marco Reus as an 89th minute substitute in Dortmund's 1-0 win Sunday against Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Immobile has had few playing opportunities for Dortmund lately and Sunday was no different. He replaced Reus on 89 minutes with Dortmund looking to count down the clock and managed to get booked in an unspectacular cameo.

Immobile scored three minutes after coming off the bench as Dortmund beat Galatasaray 4-1 Tuesday in the Champions League.

Not used at all in the previous match and not in the starting line-up for this game, Immobile had to taken his chance if he got an opportunity against Galatasaray. That he did, scoring three minutes after replacing Marco Reus by converting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's pass. The Italian also 'assisted' Dortmund's fourth goal when his cross was turned in for an own goal by Galatasaray defender Semih Kaya.

Immobile was an unused substitute in Dortmund's 2-1 loss Saturday to Bayern Munich.

After arriving from Torino in June amidst considerable fanfare with a hefty 19.5 million price tag, it was expected that Immobile would be starting games against the likes of Bayern Munich. However the Italian wasn't utilized at all on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp preferring to start with strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marco Reus and using Adrian Ramos as substitute. Immobile has shown flashes of brilliance this campaign but has only notched two league goals and will need to work hard to win back the initial faith that was shown in him.
